As the title states, how do yall come up with the names of the different deer you have showing up? I'm terrible at naming things, whether its deer or even my dog lol. I've got a few deer on cam and quite a few I see fairly regularly and when describing them to my BIL he's just like which one? You have around 6 that meets that description.

History and/or antler characteristics. Once we get a few pics of them, we use the name to define them. Much easier than trying to describe them each time.

Examples: Pretty 10, high tower, goal post, sombrero, THE 9, wide track, forky, etc

Just pick a name you can remember grin

Whatever stands out on them. My wife may call them something else after a while.

That ten point, that 8 point, that deer with the broken beam, etc

We get real creative with it

I've been trying. Only name I have so far is Split. I've got a nice young 9 with a split brow tine. The rest are just bad. I have around 4 or 5 different young 8s, a 9, couple of 6s, and 3 fork horns.

I cant really go with history, as this is the first year I've put a game cam up on this place. I've hunted it the past 4 years out of my BILs stand, and this year I've made my own spot so these are all "new-to-me" this year. But I do have a few up and comers in a few years up

"lumpy" - had a watermelon sized cyst or infection on his chest for 2 years
"kickers" - 3 year old with 6 kickers on his G2's
"basket" - 8 point with 10" spread and beams that touched at the end
"friendly 9" - 9 point that would come eat corn 30 seconds after the feeder went off

We only name the ones we are tying to kill. Big 8, wide 8, tall 10pt, 10pt.. etc. we don't bother naming anything else.

Whatever pops in my head when I see them.

This year so far we've killed "Janky", a tall 6-pt cull. Also killed "Yowza!" a nice 10-pt. Still looking for "Wide Brows", the "Big 7", and "Pathetic."

I don't really name deer, my wife will at the house blush I have named a few while on hunts, but mostly ones that beat me at the game. A few names, Chit, MOFO, sumbit%$. To name one as an "8" is more a description than a name..

that is how I do it.

Bruiser - a ten point that looked like one of those show steers
Blondie - a very like colored doe
Cyclops - a one eye buck. Fortunately it was just swollen shut for a while
Whitey - a buck with very white antlers. Most of our bucks are dark

I had at least 3 8 point + at a blind and several smaller bucks. I named them to keep them straight. I forgot some of the other names I used.
